Public Housing Eligibility

Public housing is limited to low-income families and individuals. The Housing Authority determines your eligibility based on:

  1. annual gross income;
  2. whether you qualify as elderly, a person with a disability, or as a family; and
  3. U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status.

If you are eligible, the Housing Authority will check your references to make sure you and your family will be good tenants. Your application can be denied for any applicant whose habits and practices may be expected to have a detrimental effect on other tenants or on the project's environment.

The Housing Authority uses income limits developed by HUD. HUD sets the lower income limits at 80% and very low income limits at 50% of the median income for the county.

Housing Choice Voucher Program Eligibility

Eligibility for a housing voucher is determined by the Housing Authority based on the total annual gross income and family size and is limited to US citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status. In general, the family's income may not exceed 50% of the median income for the county or metropolitan area in which the family chooses to live. By law, the Housing Authority must provide 75 percent of its vouchers to applicants whose incomes do not exceed 30 percent of the area median income. Median income levels are published by HUD and vary by location.

During the application process, the Housing Authority will collect information on family income, assets, and family composition. The Housing Authority will verify this information with other local agencies, your employer and bank, and will use the information to determine program eligibility and the amount of the housing assistance payment.

If the Housing Authority determines that your family is eligible, your name will be placed on a waiting list. Once your name is reached on the waiting list, the Housing Authority will contact you and issue to you a housing voucher.
